Wlcnt Koine Witnesses Jluve to Say.
LouisviLLK, Kv May 9. The Commercial's
special from Ilurrodsburg, Ky., says:
"Phil. B. Thompson was arraigned yesterday
morning in the Circuit Court for tho
killing of Walter H. Davis. Tho littlo
court-room in the dingy old
was crowded with nn audience of whito
men, a few negroes, and a dozen or so colored
women. There was no demonstration, no
excitement, no emotion. Tho court-room
was n characteristic featuro of county
court-rooms. Judge ('. A, Hardin sat upon
the bench and ptesided with becoming
dignity. For tho dofenso Jo. Blackburn,
Dan. Lindsay, Tom Bell, James Wilson, and
almost every other practicing lawyer at tho
local bar, including Sam. Young and
appeared. Tho lntherof the defendant,
Phil Thompson, sr., ho is in n great
for the liberty of that distinguished
maniac. Thomas IS u foul was
in the court-room with his sou nud his son's
friends. He is not taking an active part
in tho defense, but will lend ndvico when
he esteems, it necessary, and much deep
thinking. Tho prisoner sat calmly within
the bar, nud chatted pleasantly with his
attorney and friend, Br. Blackburn. Theio
was a smile upon his face, nud his blue
eyes were laughing. This was for a moment.
nn cxpie.ssion of ineffable
sadness passed over his countenance.
Then he chewed tho head of his
cane, ami seemed delightfully indillcrcnt.
A moment later he was drawing away at a
cigar that wns lighted. Then he smiled
"agnin, exhibiting tho whitest, prettiest set
of teeth in the Uucc more he
turned and chatted with Blackburn. This
wns tho manner of Phil Thompson.
the coolness that is his heritage from
a lineage of biae men, the younger
Thompson was unensy. He was anxious.
It is iin'iinit that he should have boon
ns he wns fur murder in the first
degree, ns tho indictment roads. The
men who crowded around about
him as he sat leaning buck
in1 hi clniir exhibited in every look and
gestmc tlio wannest ort of friendship. He
leturned every gieetiug with a sunny
smile, .every question with a ringing answer,
and even ns he mi' thoiu at the bar,
nirniugcd for a crime which is punishable
upon the gallows, lie a liou,ecry inch
of him. in t.ie pipulnv "ne. This was a picture
of the dcloiidiiiu in ne al at the liar
of justice. It wu.s tuthcr unpleasant to
turn away fioin n study of his face and
listen to the dull story of tho pioeeodiugs.
At 9.30 o clock the court culled the case
of the Common wealth against Phil It,
ThoinpMju. jr.t " ft is tho last case upon
tho criminal' docket," remarked Judge
Hardin painfully. Mr. Jacob, of tlio
counsel for the defense, promptly arose.
"May it please your Honor," ho remarked
slowly, "some of the attorneys
for tho defense nro absent, and will not
arrive until this afternoon. If the Commonwealth
does not insist upon an immediate
trial we would like a postpononicnt of the
caso until 1:30 oolock. We desire this
shoit delay in order that our associates
may hocoiuo familiar with every step to bo
taken in tho caso." The Commonwealth
mado no objection, tho Judge granted tho
motion and the court adjoin tied accordingly.
During tho delay thus occasioned two
men, who aro to figure moro or less in tho
trial, weio sought out. They nro Madisou
W. Curry, an elder in tho Presbyterian
Church, nud Morris T. Threlkeld, a deacon
in tho Baptist Church. The former is a
dealer in haidware, tho latter a farmer
and trader, and both aro men of eminent
respectability. Throlkold is n witness in tho
caso for tho prosecution. Curry hots not
been summoned for cither side. It is
understood that tho Commonwealth will
attempt to show that these two gentlemen
know a great deal about Miss
behind the scenes, and that Threlkeld
was with her in Cincinnati on the very
night thatJDavis is charged to have seduced
tho wlfo of Phil. Thompson. What this
story will amount to nobody can say, but
in justico to the two gentlemen, each is
given the benefit of tho statement. Mr.
Curry was found at his place of business
on Main street. Ho is a mild-mannered,
clover gentleman of middle ago. He
said, in answer to a question
which was straight from the shoulder: " I
do deny, now and forever, that there is tho
slightest truth in this scandal which has
been circulated about me. I know Miss
Buckncr and that is all. It has pleased
mo occasionally to go and hear her talk
ond sing, but, as God is my judge, I know
hor only in tho politest sonso of boclal formality.
On that night in Cincinnati,
when Davis is charged to havo been
intimate with Mrs. Thompson, I was
hero in Harrodsburg. I know positively
nothing of tho caso." That was what Mr.
Curry said,- and a few moments later Mr.
Throlkold was seen, and, after eying tho
correspondent suspiciously, announced that
all ho had to say would be said upon tho
witness stand.

This wns all Mr. Throlkeld had to say
about the matter, except to udd that tho

and Walter Davis was infamously

saloons nt midnight, and that policemen
shall not drink liquor while on duty, to-day
received n thicatcniiig letter, in which it
was declared that the saloon-keepers had
decided to kill him if ho enforced tho

tho initials of Miller, of the firm of Miller
& Holtz, prominent saloon-keepers, who
wcro to-day refined a liconco becnuso they
would not promise to close at midnight, and
eveu declared openly their intention to

was a trick of his enemies to get him into
dispute with the Mayor. The saloon-keepers
almost all refuso to obey the order, and
trouble is anticipated.

Tomiisto.nk, A. T., May 9. Tho recent
news of, an Indian fight in tho Sierra

headquarters of tho army in Northern
Mexico, at Aposura Sonora. The engagement

Colonel Garcia left tho headquarters
with one company of tho 0th Regiment,
Captain Dcvesa, numboring eighty-six men
and tilty State troops, under Captain
to tako up and follow tho trail of
the Indians on their lato raid into Senora.
After five days' forced hard marching ho
succeeded in tracking tho Indians then entrenched
in tho Siero Madres, near the
Chiahuahua line. The Indians had notice
from their scouts two days in advance of the
arrival of the troops, and determined to
mako a desperato fight. Tliey secured
their positions in the roughest parts of tho
mountains, and thou awaited the approach
of the troons. General Garcia ns soon, as
he ascei taiucd nud understood the position
of tho Indians, divided his troops
into two columns, placing one under
Colonel Torres nud headed the
tothcr himself. He commenced tho battle,
nnd nftcr an hour's hard fighting succeeded
in dislodging the Indians from their
stronghold, putting thorn to flight, nnd
leaving on the field eleven of their bucks
dead. Many were observed during tho action
earring awny wounded. Tho Mexicans
lost three stato troops, two Federals
killed, and eight or nine wounded.

St. Louis, May 9. Mary Fitzgerald was
married to August Wear, a carriage blacksmith,
but hardly had the honeymoon
passed before ho abandoned her and' quit
tho city. Like a boat without a helm, she
diifted around among her friends for
i while, but at last surrendered herself to a
life of shamo, and sought shelter in the
disreputnblo houses in Eleventh street, near
Locust. She went from one to another until
recently she entered that of Laura Dc

May 9. Halifax is terribly
excited over the present Fenian fright.
Fifty tons of ammunition wero removed
from tho orduauco stores to tho Citadel today,
and tho fortress is being thorougly
put in condition, though the military authorities
refuso to connect this in tiny wny
with the present excitement. They say tho
place needs overhauling. Great activity
prevails, not only among the military nnd
at the foits, but also among the Provincial
Goeinnient and civil officers. Members
of the local Cabinet u ot daily, but refuso
to answer questions, t ough they will not
deny the tiuth of the statements alloat.
The Lieutenant Goernor has quitted the
city for an indefinite period. The Mayor
iciutirkcd he did not expect this sensation
to amount to more than the Fenian scare
of IfctiG, but as tho authorities of New York
taw fit to postpono on no moro urgent
grounds tho opening of tho big Brooklyn
Riidge tioin tho day first appointed,
it did not appear superfluous for
tho City Government of Halifax to use ordinary
precautious on nn occasion liko thist
Ho confirmed from what he heard tho lac
of Governor Archibald's letter being received
from Ottawa, and that the fact eo
far as he knew had been correctly published,
but haid the authorities did not
wish tho affair to bo noised abroad. At
the request of several persons he swore in
this alieruoon a number of special watchmen
to be under tho surveillance of tho
City Marshal for service about tho Government
limine, the provincial building and
other points. Additional night watchmen
have been nssigucd to public buildings,
and the policemen throughout tho city
have been ordorcd to take no relief early
in tho morning between tho hours of 1 and
2 o'clock, or between 2 and 3, as is customary,
and those who usually go off duty
at ;i o clock a. m., nro until timber orders
to remain on their bents until ti o'clock.
Tho information the Government received
is beginning to leak out. It is said
that, besides tho threat to lay a chain of
loipedoes all along the river front to be
blown up on the date of llrndy s execution,
and a similar scheme against the provincial
building, on the night of the grand
farewell bull to General Sir Patrick
an airniigemeut was on foot lo

even for a boat for some distance, and bold,
careful I'cniiius in the dead ot night might
by these means eflectu. illy establish a tuiiu
of torpedoes even into tho heart of the city.
From what can be. learned us to the
source ot the information leceived
by the Government it appeals that
of the Philadelphia Laud League
Convention reported to Ottawa that u combined
attempt would bo made to avenge
hUh wiougs and particularly the execution
of tlio I'lnenix Park murderers, where
opportunity ollered, nud that suspicions,
